Compact Film Applicator


The TQC Automatic Film Applicator Compact is a smaller version drawdown machine that accepts charts up to A4 size or 8.3 x 11.7 in.


Application speed can be set from 1 to 150 mm/s. The AFA Compact is suitable for both wire wound rod applicators and block applicators. Operating is very easy with the Triple i operating interface. This unique system guides the operator through the interface of TQC lab-machines. At each step of the operating menu, the interface detects which buttons are active and indicates these by means of an illuminated red center which results in a very intuitive operating system which is enhanced with information on the machine’s display.


The AFA Compact is available with a glass bed or a perforated vacuum bed.
